Valerie Harvey is an entrepreneur, a devoted mother, a cherished friend, and a passionate volunteer. Since 1997, South Florida has been her beloved home. Her life's journey has taken her across three continents, residing in six countries and experiencing the vibrancy of ten different cities. Born in the enchanting French West Indies, she embarked on an educational adventure, attending boarding school in France and pursuing her college education in the United States.
Before transitioning into her role as a Realtor®, Valerie embarked on a dynamic career with Merrill Lynch International and later contributed her talents to her family's business. Her dedication to community service is commendable, as she has held the prestigious position of Past President in two prominent organizations: the Charity Guild of Fort Lauderdale and Women Owning Wellness, a Holy Cross Hospital Fundraising group.
Valerie finds immense fulfillment in lending her support to charities focused on women and children, and her commitment to their causes has seen her serve on boards for both the Junior League of Miami and Fort Lauderdale. Additionally, she actively engaged in the nurturing of young minds, by being an invaluable member of her children's school's parent board.
With her extensive background, Valerie understands that the world of real estate is not uniform and that trust is paramount when it comes to staying updated with the latest information. Whether you're buying or selling, she is the trustworthy expert you can rely on.
Buying and selling real estate are not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I have raised my children in Fort Lauderdale and have lived here since 2001. I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home.
When it's time to move, you need someone who will stay on task, advertise your home, show it to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange to finance, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
